For four years CART teams opted not to compete at the Indianapolis 500. But that changed in the year 2000 when Target Chip Ganassi Racing came back with drivers Juan Pablo Montoya and Jimmy Vasser. Montoya
qualified second, and with the aid of lightning fast pit stops and equally
fast out-laps on cold tires, Montoya led 167 out of 200 laps en route to
victory. This was also the first win for a car starting second since Mario
Andretti in 1969.
